Another Ode to Oatmeal Cake

I sit down to the computer tonight with my tummy full of Oatmeal Cake. I did restrain myself to only two (ok, rather large) pieces. Sam was in charge of Family Night treat tonight--now that Spencer is off to college, Sam and I are the only two Oatmeal Cake advocates left in the family. And Sam can be a little fickle--sometimes he makes brownies or cookies. But I still love him.

The reason for this post, though, is to share a little discovery I made as I was paging through a cookbook. It was one of those Ward Relief Society compilation cookbooks. I love them because they are full of tried and true recipes with real ingredients from real people that you actually really know. So I came across a recipe for Oatmeal Cake. But the topping was a little different. I tried it tonight and to my surprise, a treat that I did not think could be improved upon, actually could be BETTER!

Here's the secret: When making the topping, use 4 Tbls. butter
1 C. brown sugar
1/4 C. canned milk
1 tsp. vanilla
Stir together and bring to a boil on med. heat. Boil for 2 minutes. Pour over warm cake and then sprinkle with: 1/2 C. coconut & 1/2 C. chopped walnuts

I remember having oatmeal cake several times at your home. I can remember the first time I tried it was when we lived in Twin Falls when I was in 3rd grade. It was yummy! I have never made it and would love to have your recipe.
